Roar-wards

Standard

(Cheetahs don’t roar.  They yelp.  But I couldn’t resist the title!)

 

cheetah paw printThe feel-good factors (pick what works for you):

  1. It’s my birthday – this is the ultimate in easy gifting!
  2. Pay it forward – help me make a positive impact on this endangered species.
  3. Karma collective – make up for some not-so-nice things you’ve done this year before Santa checks his list in a few months’ time! (I doubt karma and Santa belong in the same story but you get my point.)

Other fine print: these rewards are offered open-heartedly for the well-being and progress of humanity and I do not wish to engage in technicalities that I deem to be taking advantage of my or Kwa Cheetah’s generosity. I therefore find myself including here a very back foot, formal-sounding: The judges’ decision is final.
